薩福克郡議會未能讓年輕女孩上學

調查發現,由於 "委員會的混亂",一名有特殊教育需求的女孩在近兩年內沒有接受重要的治療。

由於COVID-19的限制,2020年2月停止了對她的職業治療(OT)支持,以幫助她解決協調困難和感官過載。

調查發現,當治療停止時,該委員會沒有採取任何行動來尋求替代方案。

這名未透露姓名的女孩在近兩年內錯過了她需要的治療。

地方政府和社會護理監察專員邁克爾-金說。"治療課程之間的這種長期拖延對家庭產生了深遠的影響。

"這個女孩已經錯過了重要的支持:她已經變得很痛苦,並且不得不轉學。"

薩福克郡議會負責兒童和青少年事務的企業主管艾倫-卡德佐(Allan Cadzow)說。"我們對未能確保為這個孩子提供服務感到遺憾,並對由此造成的困擾感到抱歉。

"已經從這份報告中吸取了教訓,我們已經開始實施監察員提出的建議"。


A girl with special educational needs did not receive vital therapy for almost two years because of "council confusion", an investigation has found.

Occupational therapy (OT) support for her to assist with co-ordination difficulties and sensory overload was halted in February 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

An investigation found the council did not take any action to seek alternatives when therapy stopped.

The girl, who has not been named, missed out on the therapy she needed for nearly two years.

Michael King, local government and social care ombudsman, said: "This long delay between therapy sessions has had a profound effect on the family.

"The girl has missed out on vital support: she has become distressed and has had to move schools."

Allan Cadzow, corporate director for children and young people at Suffolk County Council, said: "We regret that we were not able to secure the provision for this child and are sorry for the distress this has caused.

"Lessons have been learnt from this report and we have begun to implement the recommendations made by the Ombudsman."
